If there was a filmmaking formula that guaranteed commercial and critical success, all studios would follow it and every movie would be a hit.

But clearly that isn't the case, and even some of the biggest and seemingly most obvious blockbusters aren't made with an air of complete confidence.

Chris Hemsworth knows this only too well, from his involvement as hammer-wielding Thor in Joss Whedon's mega-hit The Avengers.

Asked by MTV if he was sure it would turn out as well as it did, he revealed: "No! There was a lot of uncertainty, because there is no sure formula to it. This was so big and there were so many elements and so much green screen. It was hard to grasp exactly what this was and what it was going to be.

"I remember [Robert] Downey [Jr] and I were talking during the shoot going, 'I don't know how this going to turn out. »
